Apart from using your SkillsFuture Credit or cash to pay for your WSQ Security Course at KnowledgeTree Training Centre, learners can also utilise their Post-Secondary Education Account (PSEA) if certain criteria and requirements are met.
In this article, we will provide a better understanding of PSEA usage to pay for your intended security course at KnowledgeTree Training Centre.
The PSEA is part of the Post-Secondary Education Scheme which is administered by the Ministry of Education (MOE). While the PSEA is opened automatically for all eligible Singaporeans from 17 years old to 31 years old, any unused PSEA funds will be transferred to their CPF (subjected to CPF usage rules). Once the PSEA funds are transferred to the CPF account, the PSEA account will be closed. For more information, please click here.
PSEA can be used to attend courses and/or programmes at the approved institutions:
KnowledgeTree Training Centre falls under the “Public Agencies or private training providers” category as it is one of the approved government-subsidised modular and short courses training provider. You may use your PSEA funds to offset the course fees for our approved Security Officer (SO) to Senior Security Supervisor (SSS) modules.
On a yearly basis, Singaporeans below 31 years old will receive a yearly statement of their PSEA balance at the end of March. Alternatively, you may call the PSEA hotline (24hours) at 6260 0777 to check your remaining funds.
Course enrolment for PSEA users can only be assisted in person at our training centre as individual verification is required. Here is the summary of the steps to take to register for security courses at KnowledgeTree Training Centre using your PSEA funds:
